Re: Help with Composite out

What you are actually doing is creating a simple linear voltage divider with one resistor being the input impedance of your monitor (75 Ohms, as you say) and an added second resistor of your choice - I think you got that right.

Re: Return of Y2K Bug?

DiskMate 5 is an example - It maintains the current date as dd.mm.yy - In 2020, it simply displays "invalid date".

Re: Microdrive failure after felt pad detaches - ideas?

When the microdrive spins up and instantly comes back with "Not found", then stops, this is a relatively sure sign it doesn't see a gap, thus assumes the tape isn't spinning or there's no cardridge in the drive at all. If you have really safely verified the tape actually spins, it is likel...

Re: QL/E running on QXL2 ISA PC card

Ok, looked into it. It tries to LRESPR easyext_res and fails with 'not implemented'. Then it tries to LRESPR menu_rext but fails saying 'Window Manager zu alt". So I suppose I should try a newer version of that. Then it obviously fails on the command EASY_EXT because it hasn't been implemented...

Re: QL/E running on QXL2 ISA PC card
